Let X and Y be real Banach spaces, D a nonempty closed convex subset of X, and C:D2Y a multifunction such that for each uD, C(u) is a proper, closed and convex cone with intC(u), where intC(u) denotes the interior of C(u). Given the mappings T:D2L(X,Y), A:L(X,Y)L(X,Y), f:L(X,Y)×D×DY, and h:DY, we study the generalized vector equilibrium-like problem: find u0D such that f(As0,u0,v)+h(v)h(u0)intC(u0) for all vD for some s0Tu0. By using the KKM technique and the well-known Nadler result, we prove some existence theorems of solutions for this class of generalized vector equilibrium-like problems. Furthermore, these existence theorems can be applied to derive some existence results of solutions for the generalized vector variational-like inequalities. It is worth pointing out that there are no assumptions of pseudomonotonicity in our existence results.
